No worries it's support 2.0/3.0 fast charging for 1.5 hours completed fully charged
*
Even if it doesn't comes with fast charging, it doesn't matter as the phone is already very good value for the price with Snapdragon 636 at that price.

I wonder...if I use Samsung fast charger (QC 2.0) to charge Redmi Note 5 Pro, can I get the QC 2.0 speed on it? Sorry for such a silly question. It's been a while I haven't touched Xiaomi phone. My last Xiaomi phones are Mi3 & Redmi Note 2. notworthy.gif
*
QC2.0 and QC3.0 doesn't differs in terms of charging speed. It's just QC3.0 is have more voltage and amperage steps to have more efficient charging. Both had the same maximum charging wattage so they will charge at the same rate if both are charging at highest possible wattage. However QC2.0 only had 3 steps so if the phone started to heat up excessively, it would lower the wattage significantly but QC3.0 had much more steps so wattage doesn't decrease by much so provided if the temperature is ideal, both should be similar charging time taken.

Saying QC3.0 is faster than QC2.0 is only partially right.

Yes I know bro. My question is whether I can use Samsung fast charger to charge xiaomi qc 2.0/3.0 phones?  There's no compatibility issue right?
*
Samsung charger doesn't seems to use common standard as QC2.0/3.0 so the worst case would be charging at 5V2A

My point is, they release too many models until they don't have time to support the firmware. Look at redmi note 3. They promise Oreo for it but until now still no Oreo support.
*
You sure about the part where they promised about oreo support?

No? I remember reading about this in Xiaomi forum. Maybe it is rumors or unofficial announcement. But I have not been to that forum for a long time.
*
I'm prettt sure that Xiaomi didn't promise Oreo for that particular model or even hint about it. It's only the forumer keep spamming we want Oreo or petition.

Just wondering, why insist on usb-c? The phone does support fast charging on micro usb.


*
USB type C is reversible and much more durable than Micro USB. Other than that, USB tyoe C comes with USB-PD standard.

well, that is hardly a deal breaker, isn't it?

I think for it's price, the good things you get from it far outweight that usb-c. For example, given the choice of good camera vs usb-c, I would choose good camera.
*
Not a deal breaker for me but it is for some.

It's by Xiaomi Online Store though.

It is a "Xiaomi Online Store". Xiaomi doesn't sell products on their store. It is just some re-seller thinks that it is a good idea to use that name to spoof as official store for sales.

Me bad . Oh well, but if order phone through aliexpress, would we be taxed by the customs?
*
Tax? Malaysia customs is pretty loose with the taxes and it is very unlikely for officer to hold your parcel for taxes as it is small and the value declared is low. Since the parcel is small, they will usually believe the value declared on the parcel.They are more interested in larger parcel usually >10KG or high declared value parcel.

Have been buying phones from Aliexpress and none of it slapped with taxes before.

any idea how to get phone from aliexpress ya? I check on the page...the seller able to declare the item in low price....  thumbup.gif

Just order it and make a payment. If you use DHL, you will very likely get slapped with tax. Other method risk are so low that it is almost non-existence.
Hong Kong Goldway, Dreami are two sellers that had very good reputation. Although they are slightly more expensive but their service made up for it.

I read that this phone support QC2.0... If i charge it using QC3.0 charger is it affected the battery lifespan?
*
Using any form of quick charge already increase the rate of battery worn out. Furthermore, the phone will not allow more current than it can do so to prevent damage. Whether to use which charger is up to your choice.

China AP set of Redmi Note 5 Pro? So is it the indian variant?
You'll need to flash to rn5 pro india rom
*
What's produced in India stays in India. AP set are all from China so flash the Global ROM will do. Global set is basically Chinese set with different LTE band support.

Since my RN4 is not working with the internal battery and if I dont get my mainboard repaired, may be I should get  a clip-on power bank like this:

If the motherboard is unable to charge the battery, there's no point to buy this.

I tot this external powerbank could be charged directly by charger, need to make sure.

p/s U are right, have to look for something else like a clip-on powerbank which is chargeable externally by charger
*
You can try any kind of powerbank you want but the bottom line is if your phone motherboard won't even accept charge the phone battery, you are just wasting your money buying all these stuff hoping it will work.

Currently it works with any normal power bank just that it is messy with the usb cable n ugly, those external battery case looks better. Phone doesn't work with internal battery but works if powered from usb, either direct from charger or power bank.
*
Then yes, the external powerbank can work as a battery. I misunderstood your earlier statement thinking that the phone will not charge nor power up when plugged in.
